Lionel Messi joins PSG
Lionel Messi would join PSG in the summer and leave long-time club FC Barcelona in the biggest transfer history of the year.
With the Argentinean reunited with Neymar and golden boy Kylian Mbappe, there was expectation that PSG would dominate this season both domestically and in Europe.
However, this has not really been proven so far. The capital giants have a healthy lead over Ligue 1, but Messi has only scored one goal in 10 games and provided five assists at the same time.
Meanwhile, in the Champions League, Messi scored five out of five goals, but PSG were still only second in their group behind Manchester City.
Why Messi didn’t move to Inter Milan
Before moving to Paris, Lionel Messi was associated with a number of clubs, including Inter Milan.
That move wouldn’t happen, of course, but it would undoubtedly have been interesting to see Messi in Italy.
Now the current Vice President of Inter Milan, Javier Zanetti, recently commented on why Inter did not sign the Argentine.
And unsurprisingly, it boils down to financial problems:
“Nobody thought Leo could leave Barça.
“When the opportunity arose, we were in the middle of a pandemic and the truth is that you couldn’t afford such a large and important investment because it threatened the future of the club,” Pupi said, admitting a few more details how Inter works.
“As values and principles, we understand that everything must be interrelated and based on a strategy, and we have implemented them on and off the field to ensure that the goals are achieved on and off the field.”
